RAHA, Nov 25 - KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi has urged the people to unmask the Congress government in the State and the Narendra Modi Government at the Centre, alleging that the common people have been bearing the brunt of a set of anti-people policies.
Just before resuming his �Sadbhavana Yatra� at Raha on Tuesday morning, Gogoi said that the BJP-led Government has been trying to foment communal trouble in Assam along with other parts of the country. �The need of the hour is to be aware of the BJP. This BJP Government has done precious little for the common people in the last one-and-a-half years� Gogoi told the assembly of nearly 10,000 people.
Warning the BJP and RSS of dire consequences if they further try to politicise Lachit Barphukan, Gogoi said that the people of Assam will never allow the name of the Ahom general to get mired in Hindutva politics.
�Why should we allow? They are trying to politicise Lachit Barphukan. They are politicising Sankardev! No, we won�t tolerate,� the KMSS leader thundered.
Gogoi said, �I warn the BJP and RSS for the last time to stop playing politics over Lachit Barphukan and Sankardev. They will have to face the consequences.�
Earlier, Gogoi asked the people to beware of the Congress Government in Dispur and the NDA Government at the Centre. The KMSS firebrand told the crowd that the Narendra Modi Government at the Centre is dangerous for the farmers, traders, workers and labourers. �Public properties are being sold. One after another taxes have been imposed to be borne by the common people,� he said.
�With this long march we want to make the people aware of the anti-people policies of the NDA Government at the Centre. The Government is trying to create communal clashes in the State. The need of the hour is a massive awareness drive to thwart the attempt,� Gogoi told this correspondent just before the march.
He threatened to launch a massive Statewide agitation, if the poor people are not given land pattas by the Tarun Gogoi Government.
